Encodes a member of the YABBY family of transcriptional regulators that is involved in abaxial cell type specification in leaves and fruits. YAB1 acts in a non-cell autonomous fashion within the meristem to affect phyllotactic patterning. The non-autonomous effect on the central region of the meristem is mediated through the activity if Lateral Suppressor (LAS).

YABBY gene family member, likely has transcription factor activity, involved in specifying abaxial cell fate. Along with FIL, involved in patterning of the fruit. GUS reporter gene expression in seedlings is observed in the young leaves and as the leaf matures, expression is restricted to the abaxial tissues of leaves, expression is also observed on either side of the leaf margin in the younger tissues of leaf blades.
Putative transcription factor with zinc finger and helix-loop-helix domains, the later similar to HMG boxes. Involved in specifying abaxial cell fate in the carpel. Four putative LFY binding sites (CCANTG) and two potential binding sites for MADS box proteins known as CArG boxes (CC(A/T)6GG) were found in the region spanning 3.8 Kb upstream of the CRC coding region.
Kip-related protein (KRP) gene, encodes CDK (cyclin-dependent kinase) inhibitor (CKI). A member of seven KRP genes found in Arabidopsis thaliana. Negative regulator of cell division. Expressed in actively dividing cells.
